The Bonackers swam hard, and fast, but in the end East Hampton’s 200-yard freestyle relay came two seconds short of a Suffolk County title on Saturday, November 9 at Suffolk Community College in Brentwood.“The dedication and hard work that the girls put in throughout the season shined through in their efforts in the competition,” head coach Craig Brierley said. “Throughout the meet, the Bonac girls, again, posted either season-best or lifetime-best times — a very impressive task given the fact that most of them posted best times just a week prior.”Senior Sophia Swanson swam a personal best 24.40 seconds as the anchor of the relay. She also finished third in the 200 freestyle in 1:58.31, and third in the 100 freestyle in 53.78, which was also a state-qualifying time.“Sophia has earned her successes in the pool,” Brierley said of Swanson, who was chosen by her teammates as the swimmer of the meet. “She’s always a tough competitor and a consistent hard worker in practice.”Swanson also swam a lifetime best in her leg of the 400 freestyle relay that touched the wall fifth in 3:45.92. That quartet, which includes Catalina Badilla, Julia Brierley, and Jane Brierley, was tasked with attempting to drop over 17 seconds in order to qualify that relay in the state meet.“Of course, these girls were up for the challenge, and came close,” Brierley said. The girls dropped almost 15 seconds between them and finished in fifth place.In the end, East Hampton finished sixth out of 26 schools.East Hampton senior Julia Brierley took more than two seconds off her season best and .4 off of her personal best time to finish seventh in the 50 freestyle, touching the wall in 25.96; and Pierson junior Kiara Bailey-Williams dropped over two seconds from her season-best time (2:23.06) for a 14th-place finish.Freshman Jane Brierley dropped 1.8 seconds with a fifth-place finish in the 200 individual medley, and 1.4 seconds off her 100 freestyle (57.14) for 15th place.East Hampton senior Darcy McFarland went a personal best in the 100 butterfly (1:06.46) for 23rd place. East Hampton sophomore Emily Dyner erased 1.6 seconds off her lifetime best (1:04.15) with an 18th place finish in the 100 backstroke, and Bailey-Williams bettered her career best by 2.3 seconds to finish in 21st place (1:04.65).Dyner, Bailey-Williams, McFarland, and Caroline Brown went best times and finished 11th in the 200 medley relay.Both Brierleys, Bailey-Williams, McFarland, and Swanson will represent East Hampton in the state championships at Ithaca College November 22 and 23. Swanson will compete in the 100 butterfly and 100 freestyle. Jane Brierley will swim in the 100 breaststroke, and she, Swanson, the other Brierley, and McFarland will race in the 200 medley relay.

Van der Vlist cements UK job

first_imgThe largest kiln section had a diameter of 4 m and length of 19.7 m, which meant that a vessel bridge trailer was required in Germany to comply with road transport regulations. The cargo was then transhipped onto an eight-axle semi low trailer for the UK leg of the journey.The smaller piece, which had the same diameter but a length of only 2 m, was transported on a euro low loader for the full journey.Both kiln sections were delivered to the port of Rotterdam, where they were shipped to the UK’s Killingholme port.For the journey from Killingholme, a private escort car was used to guide the 64-tonne larger kiln section through the narrow roads just south of the Humber Bridge.Both sections arrived safely at the site, where they were lifted into place at the cement factory.  www.vandervlist.comlast_img read more

UK railway news round-up

first_imgThe Urban Transport Group of transport authorities has written to the Office of Rail & Road expressing concern that changes to infrastructure charging regimes could shift industry costs onto regional services ‘that don’t create the majority of that burden in the first place and which are least able to bear it’, according to UTG’s lead board member on rail issues, Ben Still. ‘This in turn will make regional railway services look far more expensive than they actually are, generating public subsidy per trip figures that are misleading but which can be used to undermine the case for continuing to support and invest in regional rail services’, he said.The UFI Charitable Trust has awarded the National Skills Academy for Rail a grant to fund a project to encourage young unemployed adults to consider careers in digital rail. NSAR is to work with a specialist technology partner to develop Trax, a digital platform hosting videos exploring rail jobs which will be accessed via mobile devices and social media. The pilot is to focus on London and the southeast.The Office of Rail & Road has published its economic enforcement policy and penalties statement relating to rail services in Northern Ireland.Network Rail is reviewing its approach to managing its road vehicle fleet, and is seeking to understand options available in the market to ensure the best value over both the short-term and longer term. It is also seeking parties interested in the maintenance of road-rail vehicles. Expressions of interest should be submitted by January 12.The Office of Rail & Road has begun consultation on options for amending notification factors in Schedule 4 of franchised passenger track access contracts, aiming to improve Network Rail’s incentives to plan possessions in accordance with passenger needs. Responses are invited by February 12.Chiltern Railways is seeking volunteers to trial a smart phone ticketing system which would automatically determine journeys taken and then charge the best available rate at the end of the day. Participants must be iPhone users who travel from Oxford Parkway or Bicester Village to London Marylebone.Transport for London is to call tenders in February to select six companies which would be granted 12 months of sector-exclusive advertising rights across the Elizabeth Line. ‘As the Elizabeth Line will redefine London, we are also redefining our approach to commercial partnerships’, said Graeme Craig, Director for Commercial Development. ‘We are seeking six exclusive partners who will work with us to work with us to launch the line, transforming how we work with leading brands to engage one of the most valuable and diverse audiences in the world.’Sutton Council has approved Network Rail’s £2·5m proposal for new lifts and an underpass to provide step-free access at Carshalton station as part of the Department for Transport’s Access for All programme.‘We are committed to this vision and we intend to present further growth proposals to ORR in the near future’, said Grand Central Managing Director Richard McClean after the Office of Rail & Road rejected an application for access rights to run an early morning Wakefield – London King’s Cross service, a return journey leaving London at 21.50, and to be able to call at Peterborough. The application did not reach the required ratio on ORR’s ‘Not Primarily Abstractive’ revenue test.The Office of Rail & Road has published an update to its January 2017 financial framework consultation, outlining policy developments that have implications for Network Rail’s funding structure for CP6 and ORR’s route level approach to determining its revenue requirements. Comments are invited by January 18.On December 18 the House of Lords approved regulations for Transport for the North to become the first statutory sub-national transport body in England. A motion will be considered in the House of Commons on January 10, which, if approved, would enable statutory status to be enacted for the new financial year.From January 8 Greater Anglia is to close the ticket offices at Walton-on-the-Naze, Thorpe-le-Soken, Alresford, Great Bentley, Dovercourt, Harwich International and Great Chesterford. The TOC said sales at the stations ‘fall well below minimum sales thresholds set by the Department for Transport to consider an application to alter the statutory opening hours’, and no jobs would be lost as staff will be deployed as mobile ‘welcome hosts’ or to other ticket offices.London Overground launched Night Overground services on December 15.
